Public sector oil companies — HPCL, BPCL and IOC — are planning to share the investments for upcoming product and gas pipelines across the country that will help them reduce the capital expenditure on pipelines and enter newer markets at less than 50% of the original project cost.
The companies have already identified around 5-6 major pipeline projects where they plan to share the infrastructure, senior company officials said.

US sanctions against Iranian oil exports take effect on 4 November, but the impact is already starting to show. India’s crude oil imports from Iran fell in the first half of August, according to a report by Edelweiss Securities Ltd, citing data from FGE, a global oil and gas consultancy. The accompanying chart has the details. A weaker August comes after a strong July. The US sanctions are expected to make it challenging for India to sustain oil imports from Iran, its third-biggest crude supplier.
Similar to its peers BPCL and HPCL that reported last week, IOC also reported a strong result. Reported Ebitda of Rs 126 bn (+14% q-o-q, +57% y-o-y) was sharply 66% ahead of our estimates and 20% ahead of Bloomberg consensus forecasts. Large inventory gain of Rs 78.7 bn (`59.2 bn or $6.8/bbl in refining) was a key reason for the beat. We expected core marketing margins to be weak, as OMCs had not taken enough timely increases in petrol/diesel prices.

IOC sold up to 30,000 tonnes of naphtha on late Thursday in two separate cargoes for second-half August loading from Paradip to a trading house at discounts of about $14 a tonne to its own price formula on a free-on-board (FOB) basis, the traders said.
